As we age, we will begin to notice changes to our appearance, especially in the face. Age, personal stressors and environmental factors can slowly begin to creep up on you in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and more. Fortunately, recent developments in the cosmetic medical field have allowed people to enjoy a younger-looking appearance. If you are experiencing the wear and tear on your appearance that age can bring, then it is a good idea to know about skin rejuvenation procedures.
What is Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation refers to a variety of techniques that promote healthier skin growth. It generally means restoring a more youthful look to the facial skin. Depending on the condition of the skin and which problems are to be treated, various cosmetic procedures are widely used. These include laser resurfacing, intense pulsed light therapy and much more. Some skin rejuvenation procedures help to increase collagen production while others stimulate new skin growth.
We recommend a consultation for our clients in order for us to look at the skin closely and suggest the appropriate treatment. Our skin rejuvenation techniques are non-surgical, meaning they are not invasive and require little to no post-treatment downtime for the client.
During this type of treatment, the age-damaged part of the skin is affected in order to stimulate the fresh, healthy skin that is underneath it. The laser is able to penetrate deeper tissues in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. The body naturally starts producing collagen, which helps the skin look younger and healthier. This type of treatment is great for fine lines, scarring, sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
In this type of treatment, rapid pulses of light are used to gently heat up the lower skin layers or the supportive tissue that lies beneath. The energy is absorbed only by the targeted tissue. This is an effective treatment for minimizing the appearance of scars and age spots.
Choosing the Right Treatment
It’s important to learn about all of the different types of skin rejuvenation treatments, which is why we recommend scheduling a consultation at Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center to determine the most effective treatment type. We offer a wide array of options in addition to the two mentioned above.
Rejuvenating the skin is easy; it’s really just a matter of choosing the treatment method based on your personal concerns.
